Lennon continued: “I went downstairs and it turned into a sort of cosmic song rather than an irritated song – rather than ‘Why are you always mouthing off at me?’ or whatever, right?.

“And I’ve sat down and looked at it and said ‘Can I write another one with this meter?’ It’s so interesting.”

The Imagine singer then recited the words to the song, and praised how memorable they were, saying: “‘Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup / They slither while the pass, they slip away across the universe.’ Such an extraordinary meter and I can never repeat it!”

He then blamed the song’s creation not on himself, but on the song, explaining how it wrote itself.
